Do you know how to apply your Hyaluronic Acid the right way? You might be surprised to learn you’re doing it wrong! I always find HA reviews online interesting because many expressed how dry their skin felt after applying Hyaluronic Acid! Dry? That can’t be right!
Hyaluronic Acid is humectant. It acts like a sponge and draws moisture to your skin while helping to retain that moisture. It’s one of the best things you can use if you have dull, drier skin as it acts to pull in moisture and plumps up your skin. And as I always say, well hydrated skin is not only happier skin but also younger and brighter skin. I personally have duller, drier skin and my number one way to rid myself of dullness is moisture. If you’re well hydrated your skin will look a lot less duller and you’ll get back that natural luminous glow.
If you’re experiencing dryness directly after Hyaluronic Acid you might just be applying it wrong!
Remember Hyaluronic Acid works draws moisture in so if you apply it on dry skin it’s going to start absorbing moisture from your skin and pull it out. That’s not what you want to happen. You want it to draw moisture in. For the best results apply your Hyaluronic Acid on damp skin than apply your moisturizer of choice on top of it. The dampness sets a perfect canvas for the Hyaluronic Acid to start drawing moisture from and you’ll instantly notice how it begins to plump up and smooth skin.
One of the only HA formulas I can apply on dry skin is CosRX Hyaluronic Acid Hydra Power Essence! It’s actually a favorite of mine along with the Hyaluronic Acid Intensive Cream. CosRX formula is an essence-like gel which feels very moisturizing right at the get go. I still apply it to damp skin but even dry application you’ll notice it’s quite moisturizing and retains moisture well!
No matter what brand you’re using just always remember to apply your HA on damp skin for the best results!
